Idaho Falls May Enact Ordinance Banning Discrimination Against Homosexuals
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The city of Idaho Falls could become the seventh in the state to enact an ordinance banning discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation or gender.
The Post Register reports the city council is working on a draft ordinance and collecting public comment on the issue. But if a group of Republican lawmakers has their way, all such rules would be invalidated. The Idaho Republican Party Central Committee will consider a resolution Saturday that would call for the Legislature to enact a law rendering any city anti-discrimination ordinances unenforceable.
Meanwhile, the Idaho Press-Tribune reports that a Caldwell woman has created the LGBTA Democratic Caucus to advance gay rights and to find political leaders in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community.
